Richard Sherman's post-game interview is still a topic of conversation and now fans in Denver are giving their two cents after a billboard was erected insisting Sherman has no class.

The billboard has a picture of Champ Bailey, the Denver Broncos defensive back right next to a picture of Sherman. The word "Class" is above the picture of Bailey and "No Class" is written above Sherman.

Sherman, who was able to escape the gang filled streets of Compton in Los Angeles and get his degree from Stanford, has been the subject of discussion for his post-game comments after being part of the play that sealed Seattle's trip to the Super Bowl.

Fox Sports reporter Erin Andrews interviewed Sherman after the game and moments after Sherman tipped the ball on a pass from quarterback Colin Kaepernick, causing the interception that ended the game.

"Richard let me ask you, the final play, take me through it (the interception)," Andrews asked.

"Well I'm the best corner in the game! When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtreee that's the result you're gonna get! Don't you ever talk about me!" he screamed into the microphone.

"Who was talking about you?" Andrews asked.

"Crabtree. Don't you open your mouth about the best or imma shut it for you real quick!" he continued. "L-O-B!" L.O.B. stands for Legion of Boom, Seattle's nickname for their defense.

Stanford coach David Shaw knows Sherman from his college days. He wasn't surprised by the player's brash postgame rant against 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree.

"That's Richard," Stanford coach David Shaw told Fox Sports. "It was in the moment. Bill Walsh said you want guys with high character who are great players and great people. But every once in a while, you have to line up and defend Jerry Rice. And the guy who does that has to be on the edge. That's where Richard is."

Sherman was the 24th cornerback picked in the 2011 draft.

"He is the farthest thing from a thug you can imagine. Thugs don't volunteer to help out at Special Olympics when they're in high school," Shaw said. "But the flip side is a guy who's ultracompetitive. You put him in that environment, where the game is very personal, and when the gauntlet's thrown down, he's ready," Shaw added.
